, in 2010 a bipartisan federal commission unveiled the plan to cut the nation's deficit by $4 trillion through a mix of tax increases and spending cuts. the plan was never voted on in congress. do you agree with any or all with what the commission came up with? what other efforts do you think the country needs to take on to cut the country's debt, which now exceeds $16 trillion? >> debt and our deficit are very important issues that we need to tackle and they're a matter of national security. and this is one of the starkest contrasts between congresswoman bono mack and myself. you see, congresswoman bono mack wants to put the deficit and the burden of our debt on the shoulders of our seniors, our middle class and our students. by turning medicare into a private voucher system and charging our seniors $6,000 a year for their health care costs on average, by cutting pell grants and stafford loans who rely on those for their college education and she's voted to increase taxes on the middle class through the ryan plan. all of this in order to keep tax breaks for multi-millionaires and tax
think that he is wrong that debt and deficit is number one. jobs is numbe it adds a sense of bad news amongst the administration, number two, it does hamper obama's ability to press his advantage on foreign policy, which he did have because of the modern and other issues. but this is breaking through and it's going to continue breaking through the house hearings today. there are some curious mishandling of this issue in benghazi. as it continues to break through october, the timing is bad and it gives mitt romney simply stand and say, this guy has made some serious mistakes here. jon: the clear politics have taken a look at independent voters. the rcp average, the rasmussen poll, gallup tracking poll, ibd, all of them have mitt romney just president among independent voters. does that surprise you? >> yes, because it's such a radical shift. but again, i thishift. but again, i think that perception after the debate, maybe more so than the reality, is everything in politics. the perception is that mitt romney swamped the president, he looked more commanding and presidential on the stage
beyond the level the pentagon asked for which would explode the deficit. and he wouldn't commit to the 2014 timetable to bring our troops home from afghanistan. and so i think time and time again the vice president laid out the choice for the middle class in this election and was very effective in doing so. jon: time and time again the vice president interrupted, interjected, laughed, guf fawed, that kind of thing. was that appropriate first of all? was it intentional? >> well, republicans like to praise happy warriors. that is what we saw from the vice president last night. he caught out the brazen attempt by the romney-ryan campaign to try to rewrite their kick the -- ticket and their positions in the final 30 days of the race. suddenly they don't know anything about the $5 trillion tax cut for the wealthiest they proposed. suddenly they talk like they cover people with preexisting conditions under their health care plan. we know if you're between jobs or between plans you wouldn't be covered under their plan. the vice president is authentic. what you see is what you get. he d
waters? i got to ask why it was when he called the massive deficit we have un-american. i understand. the deficit spending has been outrageous under republicans and democrats. but why when thaws with the case why did he spend $90 billion sending money to green companies, contributors of his. we heard what he had to say or not say. i think we boil it down to this. more recently he said, look, you can't change washington from the inside. you have to change washington from the outside. we'll, we're going to give him that chance on november 6. [cheers and applause] now, there were a couple of place where is we agreed. we agreed, for instance, that we would take this country in very different directions. and he points out -- well, actually it was the vice president that blurted out the truth that they're planning on raising the taxes with $2 trillion. actually it's more like $3 trillion. there's no secret that the spending and the interest that they amassed by virtue of their spending and it's going to cause them to raise taxes on the middle-class. i make this commitment to you, under no
the debate the other night was the deficit. the scrocketting deficit under president obama. remember, that the total federal deficit under president obama is still at $5.2 trillion. >> that's the debt that has been added, i think. the deficit right now it was also went down yesterday. the debt. and the deficit is now 1.1 trillion. that was also came out yesterday morning. >> another barometer people always look at, too. is food stamps. 2009 what did we have 33.5 million, right? and then in 2010, 40.3. last year 44.7. and look at this year already. 46.8 million. that's as of july. >> big jump. >> yeah, so are companies hiring? that could be the good sign that companies are hiring. you want to have some good news, right? and it's hard because you are seeing manufacturing though for the second straight month also slipping. that's a sign of the strengthening economy as well which is getting the economy moving. >> but for people who don't pay attention. you know, you look at that number 7.8. things are turning around. >> are your pants ringing? >> is that my -- it is my phone. hold on a s
and deficit this country is facing, it's clear that we have a lot of problems in this country that the president has just not addressed, and i think that's why we saw his debate performance the way that it was a couple of nights ago. he has a really, really hard time defending his record, defending the last four years and that's why we saw such a difference between him and governor romney on the stage last wednesday in denver. >> kirsten, thank you very much. appreciate it. >> thank you. >>> a 12-year-old boy is attacked on a school bus but didn't tell his mother. we'll tell you how she found out. >>> it's one of the most recognizable guitar riffs ever recorded. the theme to "james bond." ever wonder how much the guy who played it made? we'll tell you next. ♪ [ male announcer ] how do you make 70,000 trades a second... ♪ reach one customer at a time? ♪ or help doctors turn billions of bytes of shared information... ♪ into a fifth anniversary of remission? ♪ whatever your business challenge, dell has the technology and services to help you solve it. ♪ >>> you know t

, when there was the realistic prospect that substantial deficit reduction would be associated with a substantial reduction in interest rates that would push the economy forward at a more rapid pace, and indeed in a very important part of the economic growth of the 1990s, can properly be attributed to the unlocking of economic energy that was achieved by the 1993 budget measures that led to a reduction in interest rates and increased investments, accelerating growth, lower capital costs, further improvement in the deficit and so forth. that approach of fiscal consolidation lead to substantial growth was a plausible and compelling vision for the country in 1993. it had been a plausible and compelling division for other countries at other times and places. you cannot fall very far. from the basement. with interest rates at 1.7% for ten years, with real interest rates at a level where if you want to put your money or store your money with the government for as much as 20 years, you have to pay them for the privilege of having them hold up your money if they are going to give you b
a budget deficit of $1.30 trillion and a $16 trillion debt. >> the question would be, is it worth not getting these benefits to the veterans if it means no more lard? >> what happens is those bills will be brought right back. they are popular pieces of legislation. people want to support veterans and they should. when this ad ran that claimed that i would deny care for veterans with missing limbs and legs, it did. it showed pictures of them. my father is a korean war veteran. my brother has done to terms -- tours in afghanistan, two in iraq. april white, when she saw that ad, she called our office and said that may be sick because when i cannot get the benefits i was due only one person without the and that was jeff flake. >> let's look at the facts. we can stipulate -- my father and uncle served in combat. my brother served 30 years and special forces. that is not the issue. the congressman is trying to evade the issue. there are three specific bills he voted against those issues. it is not only me. the iraqi-afghanistan veterans organization gave him an f. the vietnam veterans g
